Re: Linux firewalls and NAS

I have a home server/NAS that I built from my retired p4 desktop. It's 
grown way bigger than what I built it for...might be time for an 
upgrade. Currently, it's got an internal 1TB Raid5 array with rsnapshot, 
OS is on a 20GB HDD (plan to move to redundant compactflash), and I run 
Bacula with a 9 bay LTO autoloader. I currently am running Ubuntu 8.10 
LTS. I would like to multihome the box or use virtual IPs so that I can 
distinguish what's accessible by the LAN only and what's got firewall 
ports open to the world. Any suggestions?
Recently upgraded the LAN to Gigabit ethernet. Wow! What a difference 
that makes if you push around lots of data.
